What we do
Magipics is an Australian producer of high quality audiovisual content including 3D and 2D animation, illustration and music production. We are primarily focusing on nature, medicine, nanotechnology, biotechnology and engineering. The animation production also covers physics simulation, character animation, technical instruction, and full dome presentations.
Magipics: bridging science and art
The owner and director of Magipics, Mats Björklund, has a solid scientific knowledge with a PhD in Medicine/Biotechnology from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. He is also an accomplished artist and musician. Armed with this unique skill set, the motto and primary aim of Magipics has from the beginning been to function as a “bridge between science and art”. This original Magipics business concept has proven to be a fortuitous one, as it has in recent years been adopted by other players in the field as well.
Long track record
Magipics has nearly two decades experience with science animation. Since the launch in 1999, Magipics has been exceedingly prolific, producing high quality animations and illustrations for numerous clients (see client list below). These include primarily scientific, biomedical, technological and educational organisations.
All aspects of each project, from the concept art and story-boarding to the finished product are handled in-house, skillfully combining scientific accuracy with artistic style.
The products are designed for delivery on a range of media, including DVD, video, over the Internet, and integrated into PowerPoint and other presentations. Audio, ranging from sound effects to music composition, recording and editing is also readily handled.
